Now, one year later, all of the business units are joined together over a total area of around 14,000 square metres. 11,300 square metres of this have been allotted to production and logistics and around 2,700 square metres to office and exhibition space.

“After reorganising the company´s structure we wanted to join all processes along the entire value chain under one roof and one single management”,

explains managing director Theresa Ludwiger-List. And managing director Josef Payerhofer adds: “Having one single furniture manufacturing plant allows us to close the gap between project management and assembly. Everything can come from a single source, which allows us to respond to customer needs more flexibly”. The inside of the new plant will be fitted with exquisite interiors for private yachts, residences and Apartments.

Investing in the region and the future
The investment volume of the project amounts to around nine million Euros. However, the expansion of the site is not only extremely important for us, but also for the region as it will create jobs.
